Weddings just have something special. You can’t put your finger on it – It’s a sort of intangible magic.
Duaa and Titus’ Pelham House Wedding was packed full of this magic.
From the fact they put the entire day together from the other side of the planet, in just a couple of months.
They planned their big day alongside relocating, across the globe + moving house + starting new jobs.
These guys certainly know how to make life tough for themselves – but they certainly pulled it off.
If you’re working your way through my blog posts, you may believe I exclusively cater to brides names Katie, not true – but it does wonders if you’re not good at remembering names.
We’ve got some other names coming up soon, but until then…
Katie & Charles were married a few weeks ago at Firle Place, the Riding School to be precise – a hugely popular country house wedding venue in Sussex and one I’ve had the pleasure of returning to many times over the years for weddings.
I’m a big believer that it’s the people that make a wedding, it’s not always about the venue, the weather or the details. Ok, so it also helped the visual side of things that they had a beautiful venue, beautiful weather, beautiful details and an all star team of suppliers. But at the end of the day, people make the wedding – my role is all about capturing those human moments, the little laughs, the looks and the feelings – and this day had that by the shed load.
Where to begin with this day, it was a total roller coaster of joy. Max said in his speech that he and Katie are always the happiest people in whatever room they’re in – it’s impossible not to agree – smiles and laughter covered their faces for the entire day, except perhaps with a small break for the emotional bits – but those are entirely required at a wedding!
They certainly had some competition from their family and friends in the happiness stakes though, the joy and enthusiasm from everyone was utterly contagious – everyone was in incredible spirits and completely up for a party. From the excitement of the preparations in the morning through to the dancing in the evening, everything was infused with joy – exactly what’s needed to make for an incredible day.
Alice and Greg got married just before Christmas at Cowdray House. A Cowdray House wedding is always a grand affair, and this was no exception! It was the most magical day!
A few weeks back, on what must have been the hottest day of the year, Kathy and Greg celebrated their wedding at a brand new wedding venue near Windsor (Wraysbury – to be precise!) – The beautiful Amber Lakes. We were told they were only the second couple to have had their wedding at Amber Lakes (so far!), so we feel incredibly privileged to have been able to share their wedding day with them.
In Early June, on a wonderfully warm, yet overcast day Eunji and Joe celebrated their love with a Wadhurst Castle wedding, surrounded by Sheep in East Sussex. They brought their nearest and dearest family and friends from all across the globe and celebrated in beautiful, intimate style with an outdoor ceremony in the walled garden, followed by a delightful meal in the garden room.
We’re incredibly lucky that Britain has some of the most illustrious and breathtaking wedding venues in the world – Hampton Court Palace Weddings are right at the top of that list. If you like your weddings grand – you’re in the right place.
I met Kate & Chris for the first time a few weeks before their wedding, at their venue – the majestic Hampton Court Palace.
Kate works at Hampton Court and treated me to a wonderful tour around the palace & its stunning grounds, which allowed me to see all the parts she loved & to learn a little of the history behind the place.
To say her passion for the palace shone through was a complete understatement – Kate described to me, the feelings she had when she saw the palace as a little girl, how she knew it was the place would be a huge part of her life, and that she would eventually be married there.
Rosie and Alistair got married at Chichester Cathedral. Bishop Michael performed their ceremony. A wonderful Double Decker bus ride for the guests. They had their reception at Goodwood House. Photos on the Lawns of the Goodwood Estate. A fun-filled, Luxurious day.
With the ceremony taking place at the magnificent Chichester Cathedral and the reception held at Goodwood House in Sussex, Rosie and Alistair’s wedding was the epitome of English elegance.
The couple are originally from Sussex but now live in Switzerland, so they flew over from Zurich to be married at the Cathedral by Bishop Michael, a close friend of Rosie’s family.
After the wedding ceremony a vintage double decker bus was ready and waiting to transport everyone to Goodwood House. While the guests were boarding the bus I made a mad dash to get to Goodwood ahead of them so I could get some shots as they made their arrival up the sweeping driveway.
Later on in the evening Rosie & Alistair unveiled one of their own special wedding touches: a giant illuminated sign spelling out Cogwalks – a play on their new married names.
Rosie works in events so as you’d expect the day was meticulously planned and went without a hitch!
Massive congratulations Rosie & Alistair!
